MICHAEL SAVAGE NEWSLETTER: Perception as reality

trump-jrWelcome to The Michael Savage Newsletter, your daily report on all things “Savage.”

In today’s issue: Savage declared the “people’s court” in session to rule on the accusations surrounding Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting during the 2016 campaign with a Russian lawyer who supposedly had dirt on Hillary Clinton.

“Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye, the people’s court is now in session. Is this the blue dress with the DNA stain on it? The people’s court is now in session. We’re going to take you, the Savage jury, to this case,” Savage said.

“Well, one thing you’re going to answer today is, do you feel the Trump Jr. email chain is a major scandal? Does it prove the Dems right?”

Savage continued:

That’s the only question that we are going to discuss today.

And, of course, the Dems are saying it’s proof of collusion. And the apologists are saying it’s proof of nothing.

And what is my position?

Well, my position is nuanced, and one thing my audience can always count on is that I will go where the truth is.

But you know what? I’d like to know where the truth is.

This whole Donald Trump Jr. controversy is a hand grenade dropped into the middle of the Trump presidency.

But where is the truth? Where is the crime?

Well, part of the truth here is that this weirdo, Rob Goldstone, is an operative who, I think, set up Trump Jr.

I don’t think you’ve heard that yet. He’s acting like he’s just a music publicist. But by what I’ve seen in that email exchange — and I’ll read it for you — it looks to me like he was set up by some big power operative in the Democrat side and laid a trap for Trump Jr., who took the bait and then had the trap snap on his neck.

Now, I don’t [think he committed a crime]. He was trying to dig up information on an opposition political figure. Is that illegal? Is that a crime? Where is the crime? Colluding with a foreign government? … What is collusion? Where was the collusion?

The music publicist from England, the weirdo, Goldstone, set up Trump Jr. by saying a high-ranking Russian government official wants to meet with him, and he puts it in writing. He doesn’t even hide it.

He was baiting Trump Jr. with an email. Trump Jr. fell for it. He never, ever should have replied to this in writing. Never. You never put anything like this in writing. That is the first rule.

So, the main takeaway is what McLuhan said years ago, the medium is the message.

Or to play on that, what I wrote is, perception as reality. Perception as reality.

It doesn’t really matter if there’s a crime or not.

The perception is that there was collusion. And in his case, the perception is the reality.

So what is going to happen now? In my opinion, you can play this right out. It’s from any opera. And it doesn’t have to be Rossini. It could be from the opera that was played in every major nation.

You know, yesterday I talked about great battles of ruling dynasties, as shown in ancient Mayan carvings.

We’re watching a battle of a ruling dynasty right now in America. And there are opposing ruling dynasties in America. There’s the Clinton dynasty. There’s the Obama dynasty. There are secret dynasties that we don’t even know.

And they all want Trump gone.

And so what they’re going to do, is they’re going to try and bring down Donald Trump by indicting Donald Trump Jr., guilty or innocent.

And then they’re going to try to make a deal with Donald Trump behind the scenes, that they’ll leave junior alone if he resigns and lets Pence take over.

Now, this is only my scenario, the one I can figure out.

And make no mistake, there will be the Republicans going along with the Democrats, as they are already.

The entire political establishment is trying to bring Trump down, using, in this case, the Trump Jr. email.

However, Trump will not resign. He’s too proud and too dominant of a personality. Secondly, he son really didn’t commit a crime.

And so this will become a battle royale. He is never going to resign; he will never throw his son to the wolves, as I never would, nor would you. He’s not that kind of man.

But they’re going to give him his option. Because they think they’ve got the son in a bear trap. They’ll negotiate their way out of this. They’ll negotiate with Trump the way that Trump negotiates hardball.

They’re going to negotiate hardball with Trump, I can tell you.

If you take away the wall.

If you let the travel ban go away.

If you raise taxes on the rich.

Whatever they want. They’ll get out of this, and he’ll get out of this. That’s what I’m afraid is going to happen.

But since we’re having an investigation about Russia, Mr. Schumer, how about an investigation of the uranium deal the Clintons pulled off?

That’s a far bigger issue, because it’s real.

Sign Savage’s petition urging President Trump and the U.S. State Department to demand that Britain remove him from its travel ban.

Get “Trump’s War” now!

    Donald, Jr. did not have to report anything as he is not a member of President Trump’s administration, but a private individual so didn’t have to report it. He, thank God, kept the emails and published them for everyone to see and read. BUT, my question is how did the NYT get them at all? There I see collusion. Nevertheless, the losers keep trying to lose even more. First attack Eric, that failed, then Ivanka, that failed, then a little on Barron, that failed, now Donald and that will fail, and who next, daughter Tiffany? They are desperate and must remain that way until *** . Trump is smarter and wiser than they and will fight back because he had to in order to be a very successful businessman and he is ready to fight tooth and nail for America and us. Sorry, Savage tends to one day all will be okay and then today will not be okay. Come on, Micheal, you are either with us or against us.

    • Bruce Ruttan

      R. Lev, R U sure you got that right? I didn’t see anything in this report that might have to be reported no matter WHO got the interview.

    • Whoisjohngalt

      Personalities, dynasties, cults, protests–they all come and go. America must not. It is our responsibility–all of us–to ensure that America outlasts the Clintons and the Trumps. This is not a “you are either with us or against us” scenario. Michael Savage must be credible to more than just the cult of Trump, and is, because he understand this. Things change. Information changes.
      Anyone not keeping an open mind, and requiring accountability from those in authority, including the Trumps, needs to reconsider their position.

    • PerceptionReception

      It’s all about PERCEPTION ….. And the the perception ” RECEPTION ” from all voters on all sides on the isle is that
      Ivanka’s husband and Trump Jr. ” ARE ” part of the administration …..making decisions that only a president should make !
      It’s the ” Perception Reception ” that Michael Savage is rightfully concerned about .
      And the perception reception looks to an average voter who knows very little about politics…Undignified , juvenile
      and UN- presidential .
      Come voting day the evil evil democrats will use the MEDIA to triangulate Trump and his voters with all the undignified
      happenings that occurred STARTING with the Whoriffing Kelly Anne sitting on the sofa like a ^$*((($%^$$$
      Michael is WITH US and he tells it lie it is …..
      Michael is trying to protect Trump from the Perception Reception of the politically triangulating evil evil democrats who will
      use any Trump blunders as an opportunity to mock and make a fool of him !……Come voting RE-ELECTION day !
      ARE YOU LISTENING PRESIDENT TRUMP ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
      God bless Doctor Savage !

    • D C-Newt

      I told the hubby basically the same thing last night when we were listening to Dr. Savage on the radio. The dims and msm are spotlighting each Trump child, one by one, trying to smear the whole family. The way they have talked about our First Class Lady is more than stomach churning to me, as well.

      • Whoisjohngalt

        “Each Trump child” is being spotlighted because Papa Trump has them representing me and our country in government and international relations, which I, for one, did not elect him to do and do not consent to. Our President told me on the campaign trail that he would bring in the “best and the brightest” and MAGA. I and many many others gave him that chance, and that mandate. He then brought in his entire family, including his son in law, a couple of what we now know to be registered foreign agents, lots of Wall Street guys, some environmental trolls, and about 2, count em, 2, people who command some degree of respect, but who he won’t listen to.

        Being anti-Dem doesn’t have to mean being thoroughly blind to what is being done with our mandate.

        • D C-Newt

          Thanks for your reply, I agree 100 percent as I am not fond of nepotism and I voted for Trump- not anyone else. My point was this: they are taking every member of his family and tryin all they can to put Trump in a bad light- over nd over again. Good day to you.

  • TellTheTruth-2

    I’m so sick and tired of the Russia bashing I don’t watch CNN or MSNBC anymore. And, if I run into it accidentally, I switch channels. President Trump needs to identify about a dozen of the top neocon war mongers and call them out and put them on trial.

    I know that Jr. will be more sceptical with ‘journalist’ in the future and that’s good since he will be president some day. The Democrats are in a terminal tail spin and with luck it’ll be the end of em. We may soon have reasonable news networks. (yeah, sure)

  • Manny Papi

    Well, Obama has has put us on the track he intended to. He laid the groundwork for all that is happening now. His intention was to bring this country down a notch or two and we are well on our way. Perception is reality and Obama is perceived as the savior of the free world and freedom in America and Trump is perceived as the man trying to bring us down and break us apart. Donald Jr. was played in a game he did not even know he was participating in. The alt left filibuster of Trump’s agenda just got extended for a few more weeks or months.

    This is a non issue and will achieve nothing for the Democrats. Dr. Savage, as a “hand in glove” follow up (if you will allow the term), please read (if you have not yet) this link:


    You bet your grandma’s best baked goods that Trump Jr. was set up. That is why any intelligent person will see the hypocrisy for what it is. And ergo, this will gain them nothing. Trump Jr. can very aptly take care of himself in any skirmish.

    • Neo Marcist

      There was a lot of overreaction on Monday and Tuesday. When the email conversation was first shared on Sunday I thought it was actually good for Trump because it further exposed that FUSION GPS was acting as an operative group for the DNC and that the DNC was actively trying to entrap Trump with the Russia nonsense. Somehow, the media successfully spun it as being negative for Trump. I think it makes THEM look like the deceitful crooks and spin artists.

      If anything, this proves that the DNC was colluding with a Russian operative to try to frame Donald Trump. Perhaps they should be the ones charged?

      And from the excerpts I heard, Trump Jr. did well in the interview last night.

    It is OK for the Clintons to do all kind of illegal things, but for any TRUMP to say on thing, FAKE NEWS WILL TRY THEM IN PUBLIC COURT?

    And then there is the unforeseen dynasty of The American People who have had enough of this nonsense! Pray for peace and pass the ammunition. The MSM and the Demorats no long have credibility. We noticed! We are not down and out yet, and term limits are in our sights! We will stand with the President, though flawed, because he has seen us. They haven’t! We are standing firm (Covfefe)…No Hillary, it’s not English – its Arabic…good thing you didn’t make it! Dr. Savage is right…our country would have been much worse with you and we will celebrate when you go far, far away forever!

  • ginjit.dw

    Desparate people do desparate things, and this trump Jr thing is desparate.

    This is another coordinated attack by the dimms that will end up nowhere.

    Jr met with someone, who knows someone, who knows someone, who met someone who might have some information that may help a political campaign, who was an attorney living in Russia. Sounds like Comey to me…

  • Notagain

    When Dems tried to count the votes after the election was OKAY. Now when Mr. Trump wants to do it is NOT OKAY. Double standard or what is going on….?

  • ginjit.dw

    Why the wait??

  • http://ixquick.com Mark III

    Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya is an anti-Trumper who has ties to Nobama administration, Hilliar Clinton, and John McPain.

    This whole deal looks like a failed set-up, but that won’t prevent the CFR mouthpiece media from continuing to lie about Russian collusion.

  • ginjit.dw

    This whole manufactured fantasy is a desparate attempt by desparate dimms. This scenario doesn’t even work in “B” movies.

    Will this ever lovin’ merry go ’round ever stop with all this “Russia Thing”, Dr. Savage? I feel that the Dims are keeping this whole thing going to keep the light off of their dark corners in the room. This whole thing reminds me of a carnival with more than one crazy clown running it all. No, I do not think that Jr has done anything illegal, it seems to me it is politics 101, most, if not all campaigns love getting viable ‘dirt’ on political opponents. God be with you.

    I am a retired teacher and unequivocally proclaim that there is no hope for America as long as Christians and conservatives allow our children to be indoctrinated in the pagan (a.k.a. “public”) schools.

    The public schools are cultural marxist – not pagan. Pagans and Odinists in particular believe in natural laws which would have c.m. islamophile democrats and islamists slammed into “iron maidens”.

  • hariman

    Dr. Savage: This is what they’re TRYING to smear Trump and all who are around him.

    The should not succeed, as long as Trump and enough people hammer on the fact that There. Is. No. Crime. In. Any. Of. Trump’s. Actions. Or. Campaign.

    Really, Trump should have never let Sessions resign from the Russia bull*** , because that was the foot in the door for ALL of this.

    Keep fighting. Keep spreading the truth. The more people who know the truth, the less power the media and democrats have.

    • CWF

      Where is Mr. Sessions? He is conspicuously silent. He should never have recused himself from the Russian investigation.

      • hariman

        Indeed. Sessions should have never recused himself, and quite frankly, Mueller should be fired from the Special Council position for conflicts of interest due to his friendship with Comey.

        Heck, ALL former Obama Appointees should be fired, or at least reassigned to the equivalent of Podunk to keep us safe from them.

  • Tony

    Here’s the question somebody needs to ask. How is it that candidates for any public office can employ and have illegal aliens working on their campaign staff, solicit donations from foreign donors, use foreign activists promote their agendas, and that not be criminal? How many of these foreign activists and illegal aliens are undercover foreign agents? I remember a time when colluding with any foreign national to undermine national sovereignty and deny citizens’ rights was something called treason. These days politicians give themselves awards for it. The establishment even lets non-citizens get elected to public office!
    If there is so much outrage that Trump Jr got an email from a Russian lawyer, then what the establishment politicians from US Senator all the way down to city dogcatcher have been doing for decades is far worse. Everything they have accused him and his family of doing they have gotten away with for decades and never punished.

    I believe Schumer, once OK, is becoming deranged. “Power corrupts…..” And Ms. Pelosi is already in the early stages of derangement, laughing about a possible ICBM strike on the West Coast. Also, Sen Graham of SC is becoming the worst RINO; keep an eye on him.
    You are right about “ruling dynasties”, Michael.
